FORT WORTH, Texas. Elbit Systems of America has won a five-year firm-fixed price, indefinite delivery/indefinite-quantity contract with a maximum value of approximately $50 million for the production of spare parts in support of the Aviators' Night Vision Imaging System/Head-Up Display system (ANVIS HUD).

An initial order for $17.9 million was recently placed under this contract to be supplied until 2023.

According to the company, the ANVIS HUD is Elbit Systems of America's current day and night display that connects to the helmets of Army helicopter pilots. The system presents important information in front of the pilot's eyes, such as altitude, speed, and heading.

The ANVIS HUD is designed to allow the pilot's head to remain upright and looking out of the aircraft, with all applicable information presented before their eyes, instead of looking down or inside the cockpit to view information from various sensors.

Elbit Systems of America produces and sustains all of the U.S. Army's helmet mounted displays in the UH-60, CH-47, and AH-64 fleets and recently won the Common Helmet Mounted Display program to begin upgrading the display on select U.S. Army airframes.
